The clothing layering system
Not only will a layering system keep your body well regulated and efficient during exercise it can also be the difference between life and death in extreme circumstances. Below is our short guide to the 3-layer system. If you want more advice on what products are best for you and how to co-ordinate your layering system please see a trained local retailer.

Otherwise known as your 2nd skin, this layer is the essential foundation to any layering system. A base layer helps to keep you warm whilst ensuring efficient moisture transfer to the outer layer. Cotton is a very poor base layer as it absorbs water and is poor at drying out. This will accelerate heat loss from the body. This is why all Ronhill’s base layer products are made from synthetic fabrics that have excellent wicking properties and also dry quickly keeping you feeling comfortable.

This second layer of the system and can be adapted depending on your chosen sport and level of activity. This layer is used to help insulate your body in the given environment. However it is important to get the fabric weight and properties right to ensure you don’t over heat during exertive exercise. The 2nd layer should work well with both the base and outer layers to transport the moisture away from the body with ease and allow breathability of the skin to ensure enhanced comfort. Ronhill produces a series of mid layer garments that are effective at transferring moisture as well as being breathable to regulate your temperature.

The 3rd layer is there to protect you from the elements. Be it the driving rain, a light shower or the wind, the outer layer will help protect you and keep you feeling dry and comfortable. A good outer layer will do 2 simple, but essential things very effectively. Firstly it will handle moisture well – keeping the external water out whilst allowing moisture from the body evaporates into the atmosphere. The second quality will be to ensure that it is wind resistant keeping your body temperature well regulated.
